Get politics out of Texas classrooms!

This year the State Board of Education is revising social studies curriculum standards for Texas public schools. Board members turned the last revision of these standards into a political circus. They made hundreds of changes to promote their own personal and political biases, including:

  • Glorifying Confederate heroes and downplaying slavery as the cause of the Civil War
  • Pushing a religious agenda
  • Suggesting that civil rights gains may have had negative consequences for society
  • Neglecting coverage of Native American and Mexican American history
  • Promoting conservative stances on government, taxation and regulation

Our public school classrooms aren’t the place for elected officials to push their political agendas.
